Installing anchors and hangers for attaching insulation is no simple task. It requires strong, heavy-bodied material that can effectively and reliably bond metal and/or nylon anchors to metal, concrete or masonry surfaces. Adhesives with the Midwest Fasteners brand meet all of these criteria, and additionally can be used in other general construction applications such as installing metal and/or ceramic wall fixtures or installing tile. Our special non-slip formula has proven to be regular and reliable, hence it is one of our popular offerings and we get orders for it day in and day out.

Recent studies have suggested that the chemicals known as VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, can react with elements in air to produce ozone and promote air pollution. As a result of these findings, the demand for more environmentally-friendly products has grown exponentially. In addition, the growth in products that are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) compliant has led to the development of greener, more sustainable technologies in a wide range of industries, including those construction related markets served by our products.

We at Midwest Fasteners are introducing and stocking the Midwest Zero VOC General Purpose Hanger Adhesive (ZVOC), available in gallon containers. Thisproduct is in addition to our standard Adhesive, which we’ve offered in one formula or another for our entire history. Our standard Adhesive is for general purpose applications ranging from insulation anchors, to anchor bolts, and glue-on “spindle” insulation hangers.

The adhesives, whether ZVOC or our standard GPA Adhesive, boast a variety of unique characteristics:

  • Thermal shock resistance
  • High bond strength
  • Water resistance
  • Mildew resistance
  • Immediate grab
